19 April 2011, Singapore – This is the second year the 2011 Formula 1 SingTel Singapore Grand Prix will integrate the Singapore Flyer into Zones 1 and 2 of the Marina Bay Street Circuit, allowing Zone 1 and Premier Walkabout ticket-holders complete access to the Singapore Flyer grounds.
The Singapore Flyer is located between the last two turns (22 – 23) of the Marina Bay Street Circuit and offers several vantage points of the Pit Building and starting grid, some 165 metres above the track.
Pit Straight, Turn 1, Turn 2 and Republic (Turn 3) grandstand and hospitality suite ticketholders as well as Formula One Paddock Club and Premier Walkabout spectators will enjoy unlimited rides subject to capacity of the giant observation wheel. Paddock Club and hospitality suite guests have access to dedicated express boarding lanes.
Besides enjoy the up-close view of the support race cars lined up at the support paddock within the Singapore Flyer premises, guests can also shop and dine. The Singapore Food Trail there evokes the nostalgic feel and charm of the lion city in the 1960s.
The Double Helix Bridge within Zone 2 offers a panoramic view of the city skyline and selected sections of the track. All Zone 1 and Premier Walkabout ticket-holders will be able to enjoy exclusive access through a gate installed on the 280-metre long pedestrian bridge, linking the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort to the Circuit Park. These ticket-holders will also be able to access the Padang main entertainment stage within Zone 4 where Linkin Park will be performing on race day, 25 September 2011.
Full details of the complete S$5 million entertainment line-up will be announced in the coming months.
